When it comes to your kids, it’s never too early to start saving for the future. Even depositing a few dollars a month will help your child learn how easy saving can be and teach them good financial habits for life. And with dividends, they’ll get to watch their money grow right along with them.
The account will be opened in your child’s name, social security number, and date of birth. You, the child’s parent or legal guardian will be listed as the joint account owner.
To start a savings account for your child, you must open the account with yourself as a joint account owner. You will also need to provide proof that you are the child’s parent or legal guardian. You can open the account at your local branch or online with a little documentation.
You will need to fund the account at opening. La Capitol will deposit an extra $25 within 45 days.
Accounts earn interest in any month when the balance exceeds $100.
La Cap Savings (Share) Accounts are variable rate accounts. La Cap may change the dividend rate for your account as determined by the credit union Board of Directors. Dividends earned are posted and compounded monthly. Each day your account balance exceeds $100.00, you earn dividends on the entire balance. Applicable fees and conditions could reduce the earnings on your account.
